ipfwcount reads ipfw(8) logs and extracts the following fields:
rule action proto type shost sport dhost dport dir iface
You can then print lists like 'top <n> blocked ports', 'top <n> blocked hosts',
or 'incoming connections sorted by interface and protocol'.
For more sophisticated lists, you can filter the entries using Perl expressions.
